Do something

When in doubt or perhaps stuck as they say, you might as well do something. It's better than nothing and it feels like you did SOMETHING which is better than nothing.

On a more serious note, it is good to ponder as well. Sometimes though that has to end. Sometimes you search endlessly for the thing you want. You think the one thong is THE THING and for some reason, it just doesn't quite feel right. In this case maybe doing nothing was good. Then one day, THE THING is right there and it really does feel like THE RIGHT THING!  And probably it is. The old adage about if it doesn't feel right don't do it may really work. 

Plainly, I have contradicted myself in a big way. Maybe what I mean is divert your creative attention in another direction when doing something, while waiting for the light to gently shine on you.

Mt St Helens

This was quite a sight. After 30 years, the destruction was still obvious even to one such as myself. While this photo does not convey it, the path of the lava where the trees came done is obvious by the direction of the trees laying on the ground. All fell and still lay in the way they were struck by the lava. Still a very beautiful sight that was forever changed by the wrath of nature.

In order for anybody to grow in any way, it requires we get out of our comfort zone and do things we haven't done. Photography is the ticket for me and yet the drawing and sketching that I have been doing is very fulfilling as well. It is harder for me in some ways and yet not. What once was hard years ago is not so much any more. The creative juices of photography are still with me, but I want to take it to the next level. The urge to work with models and lighting calls me. I will have to explore it. I see my personal style fitting in well with this scenario. Another class is around the corner for portrait work. I will enjoy it.

Golden hour

The talk of the golden hour can not be denied. In the golden hour, all things are beautiful.
